I tend to use <small> for such purposes, and sometimes use CSS to change
the rendering so that the text is regular-sized but de-emphasised in
some other way (for example, is pale).

I think it would be nice if <small> were left in XHTML 2 for this
purpose, and that the spec specifically said that the default rendering
for the element needn't be a reduced font size. (In many media -- tty or
aural, for instance -- font size simply doesn't make sense anyway!)
